    The best day of my life

    Ruth was amazing, she was super simple to work with and was very easy going which helped me relax the day of. She had great energy and made our ceremony very personable, Ruth touched bases that made our ceremony perfect to us and we loved that. Our families was very pleased and impressed by the work that was presented. We loved having Ruth marry us, and you would too.

    The perfect ceremony!

    Ruth was wonderful to work with. She guided us through the whole ceremony planning process. She was intentional about getting to know us as a couple and hearing out what we wanted for our ceremony. My husband and I both come from blended families and have family members of different faiths, but she helped us create the most beautiful ceremony plan that kept this in mind. She was very creative and gave us some great options for rituals we could do, and we loved how the box of promise option turned out. She also provided us with different verses we could include in the ceremony. These options and choices really helped make the ceremony feel like it was one of a kind.
    On the actual day of the rehearsal and ceremony she had such a soothing presence. Her words were beautiful and she was patient with us as we went through all the steps. Several friends and family complimented our ceremony and said that they actually enjoyed the event because of how in synch we were with Ruth. We are so happy Ruth was a part of our day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
